Sudan seeks Arab support on its disputes with Juba


May 21, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – The Sudanese government is expecting to get important Arab support at a ministerial meeting to be held next month to discuss ways to boost peace and development in the troubled east African country.

Last March the Arab summit held in Bagdad decided to convene a special meeting at the level of foreign minister to discuss how the Arab Leagues members can support Sudan, which is facing economic and political crisis.

Nabil al-Arabi, Arab League Secretary General, was in Khartoum Sunday for talks with president Omer Hassan al-Bashir to discuss the preparations of this meeting, which will take place on 5 June. He also met with Tijani al-Sissi, head of the Darfur Regional Authority (DRA).

Foreign Minister, Ali Ahmed Karti told reporters on Sunday that Sudan has the full support of the Arab League and praised its stance over the Heglig’s seizure by the South Sudanese army.

He further stressed that Khartoum expects influential Arab countries can play a role in the resolution of the conflict with Juba. He also paid tribute to the Arab League’s efforts to end the Darfur crisis.

Karti further expressed hopes that the Arab League can convince South Sudan to back on going efforts to achieve peace in Darfur and to push rebels to join the peace process.

Sudan concluded security agreements with Chad, Central African Republic and Libya and formed joint patrols to monitor the common border with these three nations. In the past months it said it wants a similar deal with Juba to cover the 1,800 kilometer border.

Al-Arabi, in statements after his meeting with Bashir, reaffirmed Arab League support to Sudan in all the issues related to the protection of its sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity.

He disclosed that he and the Sudanese president "talked about the issues related to Sudan’s relations with South Sudan."

The Arab League like other international and regional organisations condemned the 10-day occupation of Heglig by South Sudanese troops but it did not take any particular initiative towards Sudan.

Khartoum accuses Juba of openly supporting the rebels of Sudan Revolutionary Front which seeks to overthrow the regime. Sudan also accuses Uganda and Israel of supporting these groups in coordination with Juba.

    What kind of supports do you need rather than what you have? Egypt gave you their pilots to bombs us and brought back your POWs of Panthou (Heglig)war. Iran gave you long-range weapons while Libyan donated billion of Dollars.

        What is new? Sudan always seeks the support of the organization it begged to be part of.

        The AL should advise Bashir to step down and then facilitate for peaceful resolutions of issues between Khartoum & Juba! But as long as the tyrannic NCP are in power, hopes of peace will be far fetched.

        The SRF will accept nothing less than regime change or negotiations on a comprehensive solution.

You can come suck my dick and drink my water. if that isnt enough, then please bring some lubricant along with you, and make sure you carry water to wash your sticky ass....No matter how much you bitch about Pagan Amum, nothing will change his stance towards NCP

    Bashir was helped by Late Dr John Garang together with the SPLA,when they diagnosed the problem of Sudan and I quote’s problem of Sudan since independence,is the formation of monolithic Islamic Arab state in Sudan to the exclusion of other parameters of the Sudanese people’.Non Arabs in Sudan form almost half of the country after the separation of SS.forcefully ASSIMILATION is impossible.

        Arab League are member states and are not in form or shape domestic citizens of sudan. Logically, they must not interfere if quid pro quo were justified in first instance, then it follows in the second. YOu cannot invoke a principle and deny it in another.

    Dear my countrymen,
    I strongly object Arab involvement in any of Sudan’s issues. They already have a heal of uprisings in their countries, so let them deal with Syria first before they come and spoil everything in Sudan. I don’t trust and like Arab ideologies because they’re known to be problematic, that’s why up to now Sudan remains at tense just because we, the Nubians allowed Arabs in our land

        It is clear and obvious that if South Sudan and Isreal unite themselves and offend against Arab countries,nobody can survive in Arab world.
        You people you can imagine Isreal alone is fighting Arabs in the Middle East and it is a problem now these yellow Arabs.

    ’’from the south to the north, east and west of the arab world. all arab countries are behind sudan.’’

      South Sudan has no fear for any Arab. They have not defeated us, not Israel and so have no track records of military successes or victories. They are simply failures. What is important, the South Sudan must count on itself for its survival. Only the South Sudanese and God can destroy South Sudan not the short-legged and pathetic Arab bastards.
